7:12 am

7:15 am
he is more independence in being secretary of defense or secretary of state. a complicated thing going on in the republican party today. >> james comey's testimony on capitol hill, what is going to happen here? house republicans are fired up. >> you have a really fascinating thing that happened. the other day when comey came out say i'm not going to do it and criticize in a way, he gave the republican party and donald trump a huge opportunity. there is no one in the republican party who does not think that donald trump has screwed this up, comprehensiv y comprehensively. the sound you hear around capitol hill is the republicans banging their heads on their desk. who knows. he seems to be incapable of maintaining a message discipline. the republican congressional leadership has taken up the job of the party saying we are we are trying to to capitalize on
7:16 am
this politically. they hear a snap hearing. normally a hearing takes months to come. he is the up on the hill and fastest republicans have ever done on the hill. if the republicans do this well and they could keep this issue alive in the way that hillary clinton would not be happy about because comey raised a lot of important questions that could be damaging to her. if they screw it up, it's all over. and the track record for republicans going after hillary clinton on capitol hill is not good. >> speaking of hillary clinton. she has not personally addressed these findings. >> she has not. >> what do you make of that? does she need to and nip this in the bud? >> i think it's impossible to think that she will not, at some point. she will give an interview between now and the democratic convention and sit down with a journalist somewhere. she hasn't done an interview in months and months and most of us think it's appalling she has gone this long without an interview.
7:17 am
at some point she will have to answe answers. she has to answer the questions. no now s-- for now she wants to get past it but has to take the questions eventually. >> more than 500,000 recoverboards are being recalled because of a fire risk. reports of dozens have burst into flames. the new recall effects ten companies that make or on sell hoverboards. kris van cleave is at the cpsc's national product testing and evaluation center in rockville, maryland. >> reporter: good morning. this is a hoverboard that caught fire out in the field. this is the area where the battery pack would be and everything around it is burned. the real point of concern with these are the battery packs. basically, it's a collection of lithium ion batteries like this. when they catch fire, they end up looking more like that. those fires can be very intense. keep in mind, the battery pack
7:18 am
sits right here. you could be standing right here. >> there we go. >> reporter: the consumer product safety commission has received at least 99 reports of the lithium ion battery packs that power hoverboards overheating, smoking, catching fire, and exploding. >> if you own a hoverboard, stop using it immediately. >> reporter: cpsc chairman elliott kay announced the recall of more than 500,000 hoverboards made between june of 2015 and may of this year. they do not meet the standard set by the independent safety science company u.l. >> this is indicative of improper designs and improper manufacturing and i would say irresponsible sales. >> i just seen sparks just shoot like this. >> reporter: jessica horn says her son was charging a hoverboard inside their louisiana home in november when it started a fire that burned through the house. >> the hoverboard is still here.
7:19 am
>> reporter: the destruction is just some of the more than 2 million dollars in property damage linked to hoverboards and is one of over 60 hoverboard-related fires in more than 20 states. the potential danger has forced many airlines, universities, and even the new york city subway to ban the self-balancing scooters. >> it wasn't until after we had bought automatic of them that we heard about the issues taking place with the fires. >> reporter: jen olson's company product management purchased 50 hoverboards as gifts for its employees last christmas. >> i hope the result of this is such that they start to produce, are more safe, you know, battery unit such that more people can use them and not have to be so worried about it. >> reporter: hoverboard makers swagway tells cbs news that safety is its first priority. it will replace the battery packs on its recalled x-100 hoverboards. >> new trouble for tesla and

8:10 am
what are you thinking and why would no reasonable prosecutor go forward with this case when there seems to be so much evidence? i think how he thinks may come up in a big way today. >> it's going to be fascinating. thank you for being with us, peggy noonan. new research shows how possible sunscreen brands may be missing the mark. ahead, how you may be paying too much and not getting the protection you need this
